Respect academies

Letter to the Editor | Friday, November 2, 2007

Dear members of the student body,

As you know, before and during every game we have the “Go Irish” drum song. You know, Go Irish (Go Irish)! Beat … Well, in the beginning of it, there is a part where the student body yells “Go Irish! Beat opponent! Suck it, opponent! Go Irish go!” I believe that we should not say, “Suck it,” while the service academies are here. We must remember that the players on the field and the fans of the two academies will be protecting our freedom in their near future and deserve our respect.
